. >> jim lehrer. >> that brings us to closing statements. governor romney, you elected to go last. >> i want to thank you and governor romney. i think this was a terrific debate. i appreciate it. i want to thank the university of denver. four years ago, we were going through a major crisis. and yet my faith and confidence in the american future is undiminished. and the reason is because of its people. the woman i met in north carolina decided at 55 to go back to school because she wanted to inspire her daughter and now has a job. because the company in minnesota who was willing to give up salaries and perks for the executives to make sure they did not lay off workers during the recession. the auto workers that emit in toledo or detroit take such pride in building the best cars in the world, not just because of a paycheck, but because it gives them the sense of pride, that they're helping to build america. and so the question now is, how we build on the strengths? and everything that i've tried to do and everything and proposing for the next four years in terms of improving our education
the attacks on our embassy three-days before. 50 days to the election time to get pumped mitt romney. go on. gas prices doubled under obama. your tweets are powerful get a lot of reaction. i often repeat. >> i have a million 500,000 people and i am going to have 2 million people very soon. >> why don't you start retwreeti -- retweeting me now. >> in the old days if i wanted to say something maybe i could go on a show with you. this whole idea with twitter it is incredible. people leave me alone a little bit more. we develop power. 9,000 papers a day. a million 5, can you believe that? >> it evens the scales a little bit. it is really good when you can do that. you do it straight and it's very important to say the correct thing. i want it to be safe and correct. >> for all of these people suffering now did you look at the world economy the emergence of china you said in 2016 is the worst economy. what is the worst you envision economically? >> there are a lot of bad situations. we are not respected like we used to be. that will be the number one problem. economic standpoint we are going to b
romney. it's about the challenger. the challenger has to make two cases. the incumbent should not be re-elected, and i would do a better job. it's a two-part. you first have to make sure people say, "yeah, obama's stagnation is unacceptable. " but then you have to say, "by the way, this guy will be better." romney, he doesn't have to hit a home run, but romney has to be at the end of the debate wednesday night, a clear alternative who is considered as a potelepresident by a majority-- potential president by the maiority of american people in order for his campaign to have a chance to win. >> schieffer: is that another way to say if he doesn't win these debates if he doesn't win these debates? >> no challenger can become president if they don't stabbed up against the incumbent president. this was true with carter and ford, and ford made a mistake and cost him deerly. it was true with carter against reagan, reagan stood up to it. and it was true for george h.w. bush. he had a moment to knock out bill clinton and he didn't. >> schieffer: this debate will be about domestic affairs. i want to ask yo
winning a re-election versus romney, the challenger coming in and wing. and what happens is there is a divergence. healthare in general tends to dokay if people think romney is going to be re-elected and that is overall. but health care really breaks down to the service providers like the hospitals. which would actually severely benefit quite a bit if obama care continued on as planned. but if we had someone like romney come and take over and you know do what he says to get rid of obama care the folks who provide service are certainly going to be adversely affected. the folks that provide insurance are going to be positively affected. we saw that effect today. it was very marked. >> susie: let's look at another sector because romney was talking a lot about how much he likes coal, both candidates mrtalkg about energy independence and you look at how coal stocks did today, big gains there like arch coal, like alpha natural resources, is this a good place to put your money? >> well, i tell you this. it's early to be making bets on any sector and predicated against a presiden
to watch two men argue with each other. barack obama and mitt romney debated health care, the role of government, and governing one month before the presidential election. but they spent most of their time arguing over the economy. the 90 minute debate in denver, colorado, one of the few battleground states that could decide the election. candidates concentrated on how to revive the economy. >> the only way to meet governor romney's pledge of not reducing the deficit, or not adding to the deficit, is by burdening middle-class families, now that's -- not my analysis. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago, a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> romney kept attacking o mode instructions. obama some times had trouble getting a word in. many u.s. media analysts say romney had a belttter performan. the candidates have two more debates they have five weeks to win over undecided voters. turkish forces have fired artillery s
know, mitt romney was the most, is the most electable of that group. the process worked. i don't think the republican party can really blame anybody or even themselves for nominating the wrong guy. the trouble is the guy who is the best of the field lacks the common touch that wealthy, privileged people need. franklin roosevelt, privileged, wealthy, had the common touch. john f. kennedy had the common touch. ted kennedy and bobby kennedy did. nelson rockefeller did in new york. mitt romney does not convey that. >> that is such an interesting point, roger, you're making. i believe a lot has been lost whether you talk about wealth and affluence. it does not equate an absence of empathy as he says in the case of health care law in massachusetts. that does not void you of concern for common man or require you to have the assumption that those who are not successful, let's say, the 47%, are not wealthy because they are not doing something right and you are wealthy because you have this magic touch or somehow you worked harder than the guy who lives on the other side of the tracks. >> that's
in the second term. >> the romney -- governor romney. >> this is an important election and i'm concerned about america. i am concerned about the taking over the last four years. i know this is bigger than an election about the two of us as indivvduals. -pit is bigger than our respecte parties. it is an election about the course of america. what kknd of america do you want to have for yourself and your children? there are two seven pads we begin speaking about this evening. we will have two more presidential debates and a vice presidential debate. we will talk about those two pads. -- paths. you do not have to just look at our work. you can look at the record. if the president would be reelected, you will see a middle-class squeeze. income going down, and prices going up. in come up p again. if i am president, i will help to create 12 million new jobs in this country with rising incomes. if the president is elected, obamacare will be fully installed. that will mean a whole different life. many will lose their insurance. if i am elected, we will not have obamacare. we will put in place the kind
romney will. >> charlie cook, a prognosticator who seems to think the election will, quote, it will require a massive screwup by president obama or some international event that just shakes everything up. romney's got a week to turn this thing around." if something doesn't happen soon, republicans will panic. how much is riding on tonight's debate? i want to go back out to erick. >> i wouldn't say it's a complete law, but yeah, i tend to think mitt romney is building things. people are voting around the country and that's just the reality. republicans can be made at me, but it is. i really am hesitant of locking these things in with a month to go overall. because as charlie pointed out, events do change things rapidly towards an election. >> how about the stories we are circulating from yesterday with the done nors moving their money to the congressional races, richard. >> well, i think you'll see that on the republican side. a lot of money, though, still in this race. so on either side. they won't worry about money. but i agree with erick, governor romney really needs to d
's running on division, on distraction, on distortion to try and win an election by default. mitt romney and i are going to give people a very clear choice, here's what you need to do and here's the pro-growth policies, to get the economy going and economic opportunity and increase more take-home pay for the middle class an out of poverty into the middle class an economic opportunity and job security and we'll show the country, here's what you need to do to tackle these problems. >> chris: congressman, mitt romney has been campaigning for two years, there are only five weeks left in the campaign, forgive me, but i want to look at a couple of polls here, according to a "wall street journal" survey, 4 2% of americans think the economy will get better in the next year and 18% worse, and 32% say it will stay the time and a "new york times" poll, asked who can handle the economy better, obama leads romney 6 points in ohio and five in florida. with five weeks left, months, years of campaigning already past us, isn't he in danger of losing the rationale for his campaign, that he is the better s
it a game changer for the presidential election . president obama and mitt romney taking the stage for rown one of the debate series, this one in denver . they tried to appeal to middle class voters likely to decide who will win the states. >> governor romney's proposal he promoted 18 months calls for a five trillion dollar tax cuts on top of two trillion in spending for our military. he is saying that he is going to pay for it by closing loop holes and deductions. the problem is, he's been asked over hundred times how you close the deductions and loop holes and he hasn't been able to identify them. >> romney firing back that everything president obama said was not accurate and the republican nom no took the president to task for the nation's struggling economy. and piggy backing on the vipe- vice-president comment. >> the people who are having a problem is the middle class americans. they are being crushed. middle income americans have seen their income come down. i call it the economy tax. it has been crushing. >> the cand dates will meet again on october caneth for debate number two. and
. if romney is elected president, we're not going to have a short-term fiscal cliff problem because he's not going to veto extending the bush tax cuts. and the republicans aren't going to give him so hard a time hiking the debt ceiling. if obama is elected, he has said over and over he will veto any extension of the bush tax cuts that includes extending the tax cuts for the rich. the house, on the other hand, insists on all the tax cuts being extended. if they can't agree, all tax cuts go away. 5% of disposable personal income is ripped from the economy. the republicans take their vengeance by not raising the debt ceiling. we are back in a great recession mid january. which this country can't take. we can't take it. >> we've wasted all our recovery resources four years ago in the last great recession. so it makes all the difference in the world. >> you know, on the other hand, jeff, on the more optimistic view, i think don is making great points that we'll have the less stubborn president and that means we won't have the fiscal cliff. in what other ways? romney said last night, jeff, t
if barack obama is reelected and has to replace the justice and who if mitt romney were elected? >> well, in terms of obama, the great question the democratic presidents have been asking since clinton is, can you get a non-judge on the court? kagen was not a judge, but her background was judge-like. we were discussing earlier, the court that decided the board of education, one of the justices, not one had been a full time judge before. when alida replaced o'connor, they were all federal court judges. that is a terrible lack of diversity. she knew what it was like to raise money. >> she was a former state legislature. a lot of what comes in front of the court are sta chte statutes. >> for the middle. >> citizens united is a case that talks about giving money to campaigns as if it's a first amendment speech driven process. a politician may say, can i tell you what goes on, why people give money to campaigns? >> yeah. >> i would think, if this president is reelected, because there are so few court of appeals judges who are the right age, he will have to look outside the judiciary, which i a

time in his presidency. but is it enough to stop a surging romney? >> if we were to re-elect president obama i don't think we would measure up to the test of time. >> tonight, the one man who has debated both of them, senator john mccain joins me. >> frankly, i didn't expect the president to do that poorly. >> he knows when to hold them and when to fold them. ♪ know when to walk away and know when to run ♪ >> the legendary kenny rogers, taking on politics -- >> in all fairness i really wanted obama to be a great president. >> and talking about his music and his love life. oh, s, and we sing a duet. ♪ islands in the stream ♪ that is what we are >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> we begin with tonight's big story with just 32 days before the election, the new jobs report numbers are out and they are shaking up the race again. the unemployment rate fell to 7.8%, the lowest since january 2009, when president obama was inaugurated. he is hoping the new numbers will bring him a second term. he and governor romney know the election's all about the economy and both men were trading
. that is the most either side has raised in a month this election cycle. no word yet on the romney camp's monthly total, but the campaign does say it's collected more than $12 million in online donations since wednesday's debate. that's a lot. and it says it has seen bigger crowds on the trail since that debate. more on these stories throughout the next hour. >>> and tonight a newly confident mitt romney guess back on the stump in the sunshine state. he is holding a rally at 6:30 p.m. in apopka, florida, where he has been hammering the president's job record, despite a rise in national employment. with the romney campaign, garrett, is the governor sticking to his guns on the economy, or do the new numbers change things? >> milissa, the only new change is governor romney is going to have to retire one of his favorite lines, is the unemployment rate remaining above%. we expect that line to disappear. but focus will stay the same, with perhaps a bit more of a target, talking about the deficit and spending. you see the slogan we can't afford four more years like the last four years. governor romney h

[ cheers and applause ] this is the state that could get us the electoral votes we need to win this. >> following a difficult week for president obama's foreign policy, the white house, for the first time, called the september 11th deaths of four u.s. citizens at the u.s. consulate in libya a terrorist attack. as the anti-u.s. rioting continued throughout the muslim world over an anti-muslim video produced in the u.s., the white house paid $70,000 for an advertising campaign in pakistan to show the administration's anger and sorrow. >> since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of

by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> biden clarified his remarks saying, quote, the middle class was buried by policies that romney and ryan supported. the romney campaign tries to make the stick calling a conference call and then holding a press conference in denver this morning. no doubt we'll hear more about the comments tonight from romney as he tries to draw attention away from his own 47% remark. there is a quick look at tonight's format. there are no opening statements. the president will answer the opening questions. the debate will be divided into six 15-minute segments. the president and romney will each get two minutes to answer an initial question in each topic area but then timing will be left to the moderator's discretion. since obama won a coin toss he won the choice and romney got the choice of if he wants the first or second closing statement. he will be the last person you hear from at tonight's debate. it's going to be a good one. it is fitting that the debate is in colorado. both candidates have spent a lot of time in this state. recent polin

, not get a special break for it. >> now watch romney on defense. >> finally, military. the president's re-elected you'll see dramatic cuts to our military. the secretary of defense said these would be even devastating. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> if you're like me, you realize the general dynamics is at both of the issues. if president obama is going back to that 2009 rhetoric, gulf stream jets could be hammered. when you think of big defense programs that could be boosted by a romney presidency, go no further than general dynamics. you can see a real hit to earnings if the budget cuts become a reality. romney is green lighting lockheed martin and gruman. now about half way into the debate romney gave us a fabulous short idea with this clip. >> you put $90 billion, like 50 years worth of breaks into solar and wind to solyndra and tesla and i had a friend who said you don't just pick winners and losers, you pick the losers. >> tesla on the kindness of the government. that kindness will be over if the white house gets a new occupant. i suggest buying tesla in november. 25s loo
him at face value for a moment. small business truly gets a boost if you elect romney, you need some paychex. the company's growth is in the hands of small business expansion. obama bears take note. you might be tempted to short paychex on the democratic victory. but remember, you have to pay that bountiful dividend if you short the stock. along the same lines, romney claimed that obama's policies are causing an increase in the use of food stamps. >> the proof of that is one out of six people in poverty. the proof of that is we've gone from 32 million on food stamps to 47 million on food stamps. >> again, if you take romney at his word, you better dump family dollar and dollar general tomorrow. they have expanded aggressively into food to capture that gigantic increase of food stamp dollars. they've been using new freezer cases to bring food in. that's what was behind the breakout we saw the other day from family dollar's magnificent quarter. that big increase in the number of food stamp users might go away. much was made of this comment by romney -- >> i like pbs. i love big bird. i
that means we need to stop digging by electing romney the next president of the united states. the republican ticket quick to adopt ryan's slogan. a suburban cop is in and the royal treatment in england and other european countries today they say he helped him win the ryder cup. we are in the car and i let him know don't worry about it i will get you there on time. pat roland's was the man behind the wheel and today he is being held a hero in europe. profiled on the bbc even in european news anchors credited with giving mcelroy to the final cut on the final day. he was staying here at the hotel in lumbar with all of the other players from team europe and usa but unlike the other players he had gotten his schedules mixed up on sunday, just minutes before his start time at my dinaedinah he wasn't there. i started to panic. , he was safe but very late, that's when this american cop show that even though he rooted for the rival team it wouldn't keep him from being a good sport. mcelroy got to the chorus and then got a come-from-behind win for europe over the usa. no good deed ever goes on finish
. governor mitt romney asking election officials in three states to extend the deadline for troops overseas to send in their absentee ballots. he said wisconsin, mississippi and vermont all missed last month's deadline to send the ballots to the troops. campaign staffers say they plan to send a similar letter to officials in michigan next. governor romney's running mate says he agrees with something that vice president joe biden said today in north carolina. team fox coverage from the trail coming up here a bit later on the fox report. first, a virtual army of border patrol agents, sheriffs investigators and the f.b.i. now combing the mexican border to find who ever shot and killed one of their own. it happened earlier today near the town of naco, southeast of tucson in a known drug smuggling corridor there. three border patrol agents were together when the shooting happened. the agent who died is nicholas ivy, 30 years old. another of the agents wounded, but expected to survive, and a third was unhurt. >> the f.b.i. is at the scene is investigating and is going to get to the bottom of this
are looking better, though, for mitt romney in north carolina. in north carolina the arg poll shows romney leading 50-46%. and a ppp poll out today that shows it all even. so we'll keep that state in the toss-up column. there are 36 days until the election. this election actually despite everything you are hearing it is still up in the air. so don't count your chickens folk. back with us from washington, d.c. is peter fenn, and joining me here inside "the war room," duf sundheim. duf, let me start with you, because of all of the polls that have been out lately there has been some movement of republican money. there have been in fact fox business news is reporting that some of mitt romney's new york donors are taking their money to the house and senate. and that trend reflects an increasing level of anxiety both with the nature of the romney campaign, and polls show president obama has a lead in swing states that some republicans think is insurmountable. do you think it's too soon? >> yes. you are going to see some anxiety, you are at a football game, and people start
's talking about. you know, they are here to stay if romney and ryan get elected. you can count on that. it's no wonder the romney campaign is struggling with this entire message. but when all else fails, what you got to do is blame the media. >> carrying water for barack obama? >> it kind of goes without saying that there's definitely a media bias. >> where have you seen it in this campaign where you feel they are judging you by one standard and obama by another? >> i'm not going into fit for tat. there's a media bias. and anybody with objectivity would believe that. >> blaming the media is the latest talking point for paul ryan. at a fundraiser, ryan told supporters the campaign needs their help to fight off the media. >> we can't expect the president to play fair. he's not. we're not expecting the media to tell our story. they are not. >> i guess paul ryan didn't hear what new jersey governor chris christie said about people who blame the media. >> we can complain about coverage of the campaign. if you do that, you're losing. >> and ryan obviously didn't get the memo from the romney camp
on election day. the romney campaign isn't really mounting a full-force effort in pennsylvania. they understand that it's probably lost. >> and looking at this nationwide as we've seen it in the other states, these are mostly republican-led efforts to institute these laws. and we've had the courts saving us, state courts saving us from the outcomes of these laws. >> absolutely. and in pennsylvania, voters need to get this. these are elected supreme court judges in pennsylvania. so it really matters that you go all the way down that ballot. because these judges, just like other politicians, are elected officials. it's very important that people pay attention to who's on the bench. and as you've been saying who's on the united states supreme court because these kind of laws get appealed. these kinds of cases are critical to peoples' rights. >> we did that segment here recently where "the west wing" cast reunited to do a commercial about voting for judges and the importance of voting for judges and a particular judge, candidate mccormick in michigan. this is what it's about. the j
to find a republican operative, a republican elected official, a republican, even inside of romney's own campaign who felt self-confident, who felt confident about their guy. everybody was belly aching. we went up to do some reporting about this fiscal cliff debate on capitol hill? we talked to republicans. republicans talk about the debate like it is a foregone conclusion president obama was going to win re-election. just the mood going in and the mood going out is dramatic to have people actually saying hey, romney our guy. best debate in 20 years are coming from "the weekly standard", by bill kristol who spent the last month being a professional romney critic. >> expectations game moving forward because harder for republicans argue before the next presidential debate and president obama is great orator and romney is so, so. we saw romney give stronger performance. expectations for him will be higher in the next debate. >> james, one of our 10 to 20 reporters we have on the ground at the debate in denver has been in the spin room. he is joining us. hey, homan, forget the romney side of
's 34/52 rating. and he lost that election. tonight, ann romney seems sure that the country will soon realize how lucky we are that mitt romney is running for esident. >> i know he's very well prepared. he's focused, he's very bright. i think the country will be blessed by having someone with his skill set, his experience and his -- just his goodness. to be able to run this country. this guy does care that he's out there. and he's a person with compassion. >> first lady michelle obama did not attempt to lower expectationings for her husband today. >> he doesn't need much advice. he's a very good debater. so i do tell him to have fun and relax and just be himself because the truth is if he's the barack obama the country has come to know and trust, he's going to do a great job. >> the new nation nbc news poll shows that among likely voters president obama polls at 49% and mitt romney at 46%. tonight, night silver of the new york times blog, forecasts that on november 6 obama will win 318 votes and mitt romney will win 219. and president obama's chance of winning the election is now at 8
to this election. >> mitt romney came out aggressive. maybe a little angry,by think it was good for him. it will take the focus away from some of his other missteps he's had in the past, so as long as he does not make a huge gaffe any time soon, i think for the time being, it kind of evened the playing field. >> all right, did it change your mind as far as who you're going to vote for? did it have an impact on any of you in. >> that is a re-- a resounding no. >> and thank you very much for joining us. we're streaming live on the web at www.myfoxdc.com. >>> and let's talk about the forecast. we showed the picture outside earlier that was looking foggy but you said it's not foggy out there. >> reporter: we're going to have fog overnight tonight and -- . >> what about that? >> you're right. >> and i don't know if it was haze now. the nice shot and have no idea where it is. and this is what we've got. at least one more day with temperatures 80-plus and then for the weekend, it's going to be cooler. i want you to think that saturday's okay, sunday goes downhill and you will see that coming u
. it is not like we are in election season or anything. don't rush. you guys. >>> strategy shift. mitt romney backs off his 47% remarks while president obama sharpens his attacks. >>> leap of faith. tense moments as a mother and her five kids are forced to jump from a burning building. and sweet mystery. why are bees in france producing green and blue honey? >>> good morning, everyone. i'm lynn berry. those stories and more are straight ahead. this is "first look" on msnbc. >>> and we are going to begin this morning with back to battle. the two presidential candidates are busy attacking each other on the campaign trail following their first debate. today president obama will be campaigning in virginia and ohio. mitt romney is in virginia. governor romney boasted about his debate performance and told supporters he will take back the white house. but for the first time, romney backed away from his controversial remarks about the 47% of americans who don't pay federal income taxes. he was asked what he would have said if that came up in the debate. >> clearly, in a campaign with hundreds if not thousa
. >> so in terms of the elections, yes, governor romney is doing better because he had a better outcome in the debate. i think most people still recognize that he has a lot to do. remember, romney has to do two things. one, he has to convince that president obama has not delivered. second, he has to convince the american people he can deliver. so he has to do it both things. there's still some heavy sledding for him on both fronts. in terms of the market, i think that over the next few weeks and months we're basically going to be driven not only by the political process but whether we get data that confirms the handoff from central bank action to fundamentals will happen. otherwise, this wedge that the central bank have created between valuations of fundamentals cannot be sustained forever. fundamentals have got to start coming up towards valuations, otherwise valuations will come down. >> mohammed, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you, michelle. >> all right. we've got about 51 minutes before the closing bell. the nasdaq is lower by nearly 14 points. >> don't go anywher
out a few days before the election and that's a plus for the president since ohi gen romney. >> wendell goler travelling in cleveland. and following romney's strong performance in the debate, what happens now? here is chief political correspondent, carl cameron. >> reporter: with a month before election day, unemployment below 8% for the first time in the obama era, mitt romney called it too little, too late and too high since so many have stopped looking for work. >> the truth is if the same share of people participating in the work force today as the day the president got elected our unemployment rate to be around 11%. >> romney's plan says it will create new jobs, instead of part-time, helping to get it under 8% before the election. i'll help create 12 million new jobs and rising take home pay. >> romney's debate performance intersecting polls, and rasmussen shows romney inching ahead in virginia and ohio albeit within the margin of error and the daily tracking poll has the president up 5 points. romney met privately with laid off miners and blasted the president for wag
candidate mitt romney in the election, presidential election polling this past month conservatives decided these polls showing an american electorate that is choosing president obama over mitt romney, these polls made them feel so uncomfortable they decided to develop a new fantasy electorate that they would poll in theory and their fantasy electorate which is not the real electorate would give them a much more comforting list of results in terms of their fake polls. it was the same dynamic at work when they invented conservative-a-pedia. something you read about the world on wikipedia, if it makes you uncomfortable as a conservative, conservative-a-pedia is guaranteed to only contain information that makes you feel okay. if you are discomfited by the idea the human species is a result of millenia of evolution for example conserve-a-pedia has you covered. not only has it been debunked by the obvious fact that humans and dinosaurs co-existed, but in fact according to conserve-a-pedia dinosaurs are actually still here and have been seen in new guinea twice since 1990. see if you don't like t
different things. the latino community will be more inclined to push the president. if romney is elected, he will not be able to sneeze. if obama gets reelected, the latinos will be more inclined to push him harder than the black community. the latino community is more diverse. they are more inclined to push marco rubio that people from the dominican republic and when it comes to issues of immigration. they will be more inclined to stand on their platforms. the other aspect is i think african-americans will be less likely to push back on a history maker, and one of the pockets of opportunity for black people is we need to push the history maker to be historic a little bit more for us of the the next four years. we are intended to do that because you go from slavery to the first black president. it has only been 150 years. think about the journey to go from slavery to the leader of the free world within 150 years. we are only 50 years away from jim crow. i think we probably need to push this president if he gets elected. >> we have pushed from the inside more from the outside. in another four
influenced by what happens in that election. if governor romney wins the election republicans will be less likely to come to the table seriously ready to talk about revenues. if the president win election he'll say that's a mandate from the american people we're getting rid of bush tax cuts. but the composition of the house and senate even though this lame duck session is the current congress what they see happening in november will greatly influence. the best thing, the best thing between now and election is for you to talk about this on your program. hopefully the candidates talk about it around the country and the american people in their votes on november 6th makes some kind of decision on this. you mentioned it didn't come up much in the debate. most candidates for congress won't talk about it because it requires tough choices. >> ali, even the people who have to fix this. we talk about the senators, a few senators who are starting to talk about starting to talk about a framework and we don't have an awful lot of time. between you talk to them and say look can you tell me what are you
romney was a clear victor tonight. the question politically, is is it going to matter in the election? that's why the sampling of undecided voters matters. and i would say that those findings are significant if there are a lot of ub decided voters. -- undecided voter. we know that these debates tend to reenforce preferences. a lot of people have already made up their mind. did anybody's minds get changed? my guess is not in this case. the nod goes to governor romney, but i don't know if it's going to change the election just yet. >> reporter: you talked about body language. we know that romney has done 19 debates in the past year: the president not had had one for four years. >> and he's had practice. but in this instance , the president i think forgot something he learned before. when you're showing a split screen, you don't want to be looking down, you don't want to be looking as if you're jump barely tolerating having to put up with them there. and that was the visual coming across a lot of times. it tends to reenforce the idea that is false, but visually comes across that romney w
in the primaries, saying that mitt romney will say absolutely anything to get elected. >> the president had 90 minutes, now, if he had done his homework and prepared, if he had actually studied romney, why didn't he say it? virtually every analyst has said, and even your deputy campaign manager has said the charges -- was made wrong. forgetting that for a second, the job of the president is supposed to be able to be competent and to stand up for what he believes in and articulate what is wrong. mitt romney walked over him. >> and alex, you mentioned the president is air born to the golden state, a star studded concert with katy perry, and tuesday, campaigning in ohio, meanwhile, mitt romney had a rally last night in florida and stays in florida for a second day, more campaign events later in that swing state. >> yeah, i think you left out george clooney, because for some, that is a headliner, just saying, as well. thank you. >>> as mike said, mitt romney is in the sunshine state. t nominee there for a second day. and a good sunday to you, peter, how is mitt romney coming off to the crowd there
and counting until the election, and new tonight, strong debate from both the president and mitt romney, campaign team. first, here is the campaign adviser, robert gibbs. >> it takes a long time to dig out of this avalanche of bad decisions that were before the obama presidency, one thing we see is clear, mitt romney's plan is to go back to a failed economic theory of tax cuts for the rich, despite the fact he deny attend tax cuts, and the math. and let's go to war with sesame street but give wall street a big, wet, kiss, that is call what got us into this mess, we spent four years digging out of it. >>> meanwhile, gingrich saying the numbers were good for the president, but the overall picture is still gloomy. >> i think it was a significant help to the president. imagine coming out at 8.2 following the debate, i mean people would have entered the week saying it is close to the end. so it is part of the whole process, the campaign will go down to the end. it will be one of the most interesting campaigns in american history, i think you will see it go back and forth somewhat. on friday,
today as the day the president got elected our unemployment rate to be around 11%. >> romney's plan says it will create new jobs, instead of part-time, helping to get it under 8% before the election. i'll help create 12 million new jobs and rising take home pay. >> romney's debate performance intersecting polls, and rasmussen shows romney inching ahead in virginia and ohio albeit within the margin of error and the daily tracking poll has the president up 5 points. romney met privately with laid off miners and blasted the president for waging war with workers, and romney that's an is crucial section of energy independence. >> i think we should put the americans back to work and it's energy abundant and cheap and burned in a clean way. >> and romney with fireworks and country car trace adkins that the president's trillion dollar stimulus would get unemployment lower than it is. >> he said right now we would be at 5.4% unemployment. >> romney pounded joe biden for stating the administration' goal on a trillion dollar tax hike on those making more than 200,000 a year or family 250,000. >> pe
of experts. they did an analysis like they do all of the tax proposals. they point out that if romney ryan were elected, it would increase taxes by middle-class families by $2,000 a year. we have seen this before. letting banks write their own rules. massive tax cuts for the very wealthy,we know how it ended. it ended in the catastrophe of the middle class. and the great recession of 2008. ladies and gentlemen, i am telling you today, we will not go back to that. [cheers and applause] we cannot go back to that policy. america cannot afford to go back to that policy. the present and i have a different way forward. let me tell you what our plan is. in addition,we have created over 5 million private sector jobs. 5.1 million since we got control. our plan to continue this is made up of four parts. we are going to do it by giving tax breaks to companies that bring factories back to america, not companies that take factories out of america. [applause] we are going to continue to knock down those barriers that exist around the world saying no american goods here. we are going to level the playing
battleground states compared to $515 million for the entire 2008 election. >> romney paid 14% in taxes last year on 13 million in income. >> obama wages war on coal. >> they blow everything out of proportion. >> reporter: in colorado alone, $47 million in five months have been spent by the romney and obama campaigns. and the groups that support them. come november people here can tell the rest of the nation how they feel about enduring all those tv ads. >> let me get your e-mail address. >> reporter: amendment 65 is on the ballot. if passed the state's congressional delegation would be required to propose an amendment to the u.s. constitution limiting campaign contributions and spending. this is the executive director of colorado common cause. >> the result is a democracy that distorts the voice of ordinary people in favor of those who can write multimillion dollar expects. >> reporter: billionaires would argue they have the same rights as to freedom speech as anybody else. >> freedom of speech problem texts to say what we want but it doesn't give them the right to shout louder than the res
for romney right now but the race could change until election day because we haven't had the debates. media sort of wishful thinking, trying too write off romney. i normally do not buy into the idea media is on board on one side. this the exception. this campaign season has been especially egregious in terms of them ignoring things that are bad about president obama and obsessing over things that mitt romney has done wrong. >> rick: cal, why? >> why? do you have to ask. my goodness. first of all these polls, we talked about this before on the show. i'm opposed to news organizations doing their own polls and making news from them. what you are going to see ten days, two weeks before the election is lot of story line being, hey the race is night thing because they want ratings the but these things are sophisticated form of fortune telling. i passed on the way studio, psychic, let me stop the cab and see who is going to win the election but it's the same approach. >> rick: the narrative that gets plays out in the media. it's almost over. if romney doesn't score, big in the first debate in denv
the election. romney is only at 206. furthermore the associated press says in order for mitt romney to win, he would have to switch all these states. he needs florida colorado, and nevada and north carolina, and new hampshire, and virginia, and either ohio or iowa. but he's not winning in any of those states oops. divert the money. divert the money. run, run run. right now they're running for the hills. now that you're in these desperate straits, what are you going to do? you're going to go to dirty tricks, and on friday we started to tell but that. in five swing states hey, look at that, those are the states that romney needs colorado nevada, north carolina, and florida and virginia, the states we gave you just a second go doing dirty tricks, and got busted. then the republican party fired them saying, we don't know about those guys. here is a guy on colorado only doing registrations for republicans. >> who are you region rejistrating. >> we're registering only republicans. >> you said you're only registering only republicans. >> we're trying to. >> she worked with the same republican hacks w
are a romney voter or fan for something that would change the apparent course of the election which you look at the thing nationally and it appears to be a pretty tight race. if you look at it in the key states. president obama appears to be ahead nearly everywhere. and by a significant margins in some places such as ohio where it's several points. now, you can't say that it's over. it certainly is not straight line projections are very dangerous in politics. things can change. always on the lookout for something to change it debate might much although it hasn't happened very often. >> bill: i think it's going to happen this year one way or the other. this is the stat that i will point to the rat muffin poll has the president up by three which is good news by the president. has had romney up most of the other polling polling times however when asked are you definitely going to vote for your guy? definitely 43% in the rasmussen poll say yes for romney only 42 for barack obama. i believe if mitt romney does well and can sting the president like ronald reagan stung jimmy carter that he will imm
't been forceful enough. last year -- last elections 61% 45%. romney is running better than mccain ran in the polls. and i do believe it's because of disenchantment with president obama i know a will the of people myself antidotal doesn't do much good here. who they are not sure about romney, that's why i'm saying that the first debate means everything if he can inspire people who are not devoted. 42% devoted to president obama are not going to vote for romney. there is swing area there where if the president comes off weak or flustered. if romney can fluster him. romney is going to pick those up quickly there is much bigger than the first debate. >> i would say president obama is a known quantity. is he probably not going to change people's opinions of him. romney is a little different. even though he has been doing this for years now we have been through a whole series. people didn't watch those. people didn't watch the convention he have a big audience he is the one that needs to make a big impression. >> bill: no doubt. people need to look at the two men on the stage and think gee
is elected obama or mitt romney >> that is a good estimate. once again that buries the problem. but they have not solved any problems. look at last summer they pushed it aside they will. but this is bad economics the market does not suffer from lack of liquidity in the bank's common they are loaded. is lack of confidence. in december they will not do anything. does nothing but add to the uncertainty. neil: you are better than i will be but a lot to do not respond until they see a market panic with a free fall. that is why they brash to bad decisions because the market has a huge hissy fit so they cobble together a debt deal we know is stupid at the time to calm down the markets then they go right back to the selling spree. >> they can all they pay attention how they maintained or get power. sometimes good policy is a political negative. neil: i was not clear. they respond to short-term gyration which is just short minded to get us over the hump or any day at -- geo to avoid the ramifications. it is like fooling with the taxpayer. >> they deceive themselves. look at the stock market actually,
fascinating. >> i agree with you. >> president obama or governor romney whomever is elected to the oval office through 2016 could end up with a job three times to rename justices to the supreme court. so this is a critical election. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our workers." how can mitt romney take on the cheaters... when he's taking their side? >>> i'm chatting off camera with christine romans because i can't believe the story i'm about to bring you. it's the economy. we talk a lot about low interest rates on this show. right now money is as cheap as you can get. christine romans is here to talk about the other side of cheap interest rates. you don't always benefit. you might get a great, you know, bonus on your mortgage rate. >> right. >> i was just looki
when they first came out. some people are saying yeah that's the mitt romney we thought we elected. so how does that play with them? >> i quite frankly don't think it's that big of deal really. because we all know in an election campaign. the idea is you have your base, you turn out your base and then you appeal to others and it's like inviting company over or applying for a job, you want to leave them with the best impression. president obama did the same thing with great success in 2008. >> jennifer: at the debate though, j.d. mitt romney made a clear tack to the middle and made even remarks about how regulation is good and all of that. i'm -- you saw it i'm sure. do you think that that ends up causing some trouble with the far right or the tea party right at all or are people just so excited that he won the debate that it doesn't matter what he is saying now? >> the most anti-regulation person among us, i guess that would be me understands the needs for stop signs and stoplights and dare i say it even a federal communications board. so it not something wh
a lot in this election about what romney's plan will do to medicare beneficiaries, but what happens to medicaid beneficiaries? you cut medicaid by 600 or 700 billion, what happens to the people who rely on medicaid, the poor or children or elderly disabled across the country. >> i just put together some numbers on this in a report and i find that in the year 2022 while the affordable care act will lead to 33 million more americans having health care coverage, romney's plan would leave to roughly 18 to 20 million not having coverage. so this is a huge hit to the possibilities for insurance coverage in america. >> 50 million americans. jonathan gruber, thank you very much as always for being here. >> you bet. happy to be here. >> up next, the amazing steve martin gets political. .at the be world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our student
of voters. one of the things that romney has been very self-conscious about this entire general election is being called a flip-flopper. he was concerned about this in the primaries, but he has stuck with this on the issue of immigration until recently. he has actually had some positions that have modulated. he took a stand on obama's executive action about some temporary visas being issued and this was the first time he had commented on it in about 100 days and it was the day before the debate. he gave a little more meat on the bones the day before the debate about tax policy. but you're not seeing him change his stance and i think what you're going to continue to see is this dual campaign where you here one thing in rallies and another thing in interviews. >> one of the things that's fascinating about that, he did not shake the etch a sketch after the primary. if anything, the moderate mitt we saw a couple of nights ago, it's surprising that we haven't seen the moderate mitt much earlier. do you think what's happened here is that conservatives become afraid enough that they thought he
that election, romney or obama? the reason i ask you is mitt romney has been much more aggressive in the language he has used against your country than barack obama has. >> translator: i do respect the right to free elections for the people of the united states. this is the right of the people of the united states. >> were you happy with what mitt romney said about iran? >> translator: i said that i really don't want to express any opinions, but i do believe that uni l uni lateral behaviors and bullying behaviors in the world are coming to an end. everyone in the world must seek friendship, humanity, human values and logic. and this is something that will govern the world. >>> president ahmadinejad claims there are no homosexuals in iran. when we come back, you'll hear what he told me when i asked if he believes people are born gay. chirping electric shaver shaking remote tapping sound shaking drill chirping tapping shaking remote wouldn't it be great to have one less battery to worry about? car honking irping the 2012 sonata hybrid. the only hybrid with a lifetime hybrid battery
